LIMO, le livre

THE BOOK 

 

LIMO is the name of the publishing company, the name of the book, and it deals with limousines! Makes sense. A study on this engine that floats within pop culture and between luxury, show-off and voluptuousness.

 

Behind this first frivolous intent, the goal is also to paint another image of the art of graffiti than the binary one it has had: "ghetto" for those who did on the sly, "artsy" for those belonging to the street art movement. 

Far from this binary quandary, the graffiti is also its own form of expression, absent any political stances, leaving an ephemeral trail in a variety of public spaces and representing a willingness to explore new plastic or narrative terrains.

 

Those are values that we share and that fueled the commitment to produce our first book.

What about the engine?

 

From Paris to Buenos Aires stopping by Barcelona, 32 creators are officially invited by LIMO to share their transversal skills of image and drawing:

Between orders and artistic projects they will express themselves on a piece a paper, a canvas, outdoor on walls. They try to go beyond the format to offer surprising images.

 

Around the"limousine" theme, they have produced 3 graphic works:

A black and white drawing of a limousine each car was sketched with those formal constraints.

A "on the road" logo inspired by the automotive world. Next to this commissioned work they have produced a photograph (in landscape format) of a mural painting with no limitations in its technique, narration and format.

Through an "invitation au voyage" where luxury, contemporary graffiti and murals compete in a wild race, Limo intends to shed light on the world of these versatile artists.

What about the body?

 

Small format (15.5 x 22 cm) but lots of pages: 192. Using of three different types of paper by Fredigoni  Otabind ® hardcover for a smooth opening. Leatherette cover with flaps (14 cm) so you'll feel comfortable hands on the wheel The text will be written in Kreuz by Large And it will all be wonderfully printed by the Italian Musumeci.

 

We have passed the technical test with flying colors, haven't we?

With a print-run of 800 copies, LIMO will be available in book shops in December 2015.
